Why Do I Need To Be Baptized?

Have you ever wondered if there was any way to let go of the past, to turn over a new leaf, and to begin all over again?

The Bible tells us that “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Rom 3:23). That is why Jesus said that the only way you can see the kingdom of God is to be “born again” (Jn 3:3).

How can that happen? you ask. Can a person just crawl back into his mother and be born again? someone asked Jesus.

Jesus replied, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God” (Jn 3:5). And He enabled us to be born again of water through water baptism.

The Bible calls baptism the “washing of regeneration” (Titus 3:5) because it effects a spiritual transformation. When you are immersed in the living water, your sinful being dies and is buried, and you are clothed with a new life—the life of Jesus Christ (Col 2:11-13).

The moment you come up out of the water, you become a new being who has escaped the punishment of your sins and possesses the hope of eternal life.

How can water baptism wash away sins?

And now why are you waiting? Arise and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord. (Acts 22:16)
